Has participation in your wellness events been a little lackluster?
Maybe your corporate wellness program kicked off full of enthusiasm and packed conference rooms, but now attendance is becoming sparse. It’s ok – everything loses its shine after a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get it back! Try giving your wellness program a little polish with one of these tried-and-true lunch and learn activities.
Top 3 Engaging Lunch & Learn Activities:
- Quick, Healthy Meals: This might be the greatest lunch and learn idea ever. Hosting a healthy cooking class remains a favorite topic for obvious reasons – not only is it hands-on, but participants get to eat their creations at the end! Teach employees to prep and cook a fast, easy meal using readily-available healthy ingredients. Help your employees build a repertoire of go-to recipes by making this a recurring event. Don’t have a full kitchen in your workplace? No problem! These classes can easily be taught with just a table and a hot plate or two.
- Physical Activity at Work: It’s common for employees to feel like they’re caught in a Catch-22. They want to exercise regularly and stay healthy, but their job requires them to sit at a desk for the majority of the day! This lunch and learn activity strives to solve that problem. There are many exercises that can be done at a desk or around the office – teaching them to your staff will send the message that you are just as committed to their health as they are.
- Stress Relief and Management: Most of us won’t be surprised that our jobs are also one of our top stressors – so doesn’t it make sense that we help our employees learn to manage and minimize that stress? Host a lunch and learn presentation that teaches yoga and breathing exercises, as well as mindfulness and meditation techniques.
